Our family of four completed our pilgrimage on foot to Assisi with the Bosco as our final approach. We had never been to Assisi before and I cannot imagine a better introduction to St Francis's home. To enter the unassuming gate, briefly be enclosed by...More

A wooded hillside and valley with fields and remains of a convent have been restored to look as they did in St Francis's lifetime. You enter through a gate in the wall to the left of the upper entrance to the Basilica and go down...More
